This is a long overdue review considering I visited Helsinki late last year, but better late than never! I've actually read up on this restaurant on viamichelin prior to making a reservation. Having never tried Finnish food before, I was not entirely sure what to expect. However, I am pleased to say that I'm glad I made the reservation and... More

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor, and thank you recommending our restaurant to others. I am guessing by your review headline that you didn't enjoy Helsinki so much! Next time you are in Helsinki, please don't hesitate to revisit us, we would love to have you back. Regards Restaurant Demo More

Visited on a busy Saturday night and I loved it. The food was exceptional - probably the best Michelin-starred restaurant in Helsinki while also being the most relaxed! The wine list had some really special bottles and the sommelier was very knowledgable. I really want to go back and have everything again...

Upscale restaurant in the city. Advanced and contemporary interpretations of European cuisine with a local flavor. A visit will take some time. Expect to spend approx. 1.5-2 hours for a four course menu.

We had a romantic dinner at Demo. We ordered a set of 5 courses (if I remember correctly) and the food was nice. But food and service wasn't as nice as the bill indicated. I would say tht it is over priced and not worth if you are using your own money. Maybe with someone else paying?

We ordered 8 course menu with the wine package. Usually they only have 7 course but now Demo had received tryffel and they offered extra course. The menu was good combination of different tastes which worked perfectly with the selected wines. The last course was amazing, it really melted into my mouth!

Excellent food, wonderful staff, romantic atmosphere, surprising dishes and overall a very pleasant experience. We had the 6 course menu together with the wine package. Cost was of course high but still worth it. (Except the glass of champagne as apperitive which cost 20€ and the tab water 9€...) They were also able to adjust to glutenfree and vegetarian diets....

I went to demo restaurant last week with my girlfriends. The restaurant was really busy which created a great atmosphere. We did the 6 course menu with wines, because we thought two deserts would have been too much for us. The chef Tommi presented our first dish which was a fantastic touch and was great to meet the face behind... More

This was not my first time at Demo, the oldest restaurant in Helsinki still holding its Michelin star for a decade now. For such a high quality experience it's affordable and will always take your breath away. So there was an event for a winemakers dinner and I really had to go to see how my favourite restaurant can handle... More
